Lincolnshire Star Obituary:

Barton is mourning the loss of two more in its noble sons - namely Company Sergt.-Major H. Pickard (Billy) and his son Private Bobby Pickard, both of the Lincolns. They met their death together in France. Along with a number of others, they were in a dug-out, which was blown up and all were killed outright with the exception of the elder Pickard, who died some hours after, when at Calais, on his way home to England. The elder Pickard was 52 years of age, and joined the volunteers when 15 years of age, and he has, it will be seen, served 37 years in the forces. To Mrs. Pickard and her two daughters in their double bereavement the utmost sympathy is extended. The Lincolnshire Star, Saturday, 14th July, 1917, page 2.
